The official specifications for the AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT GPU have been announced, revealing an affordable card with lots of VRAM, but a surprisingly unchanged core count from its predecessor.
Reported via VideoCardz, alongside the specifications for the new Nvidia RTX 4000 SUPER series, the AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT costs just $60 more than its non-XT counterpart, with a recommended retail price of just $329.
AMD has decided to stick with the same 32 compute units as the stock model, alongside keeping the card’s 18Gbps memory speed, 128-bit memory bus and 2048 stream processors. Even the card’s AI processor count is the same at 64.
However, there are improvements to the card in terms of clock speed. While the standard model has a clock speed of 2.25Ghz with a boost clock of 2.66Ghz, the XT SKU boosts that up to a clock speed of 2.47Ghz with a boost clock speed of 2.76Ghz.
Furthermore, the amount of VRAM in the AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT has been doubled for just $60 extra. Instead of 8GB of memory, you’ll get 16GB, although this does result in an increase in board power up to 190w, although it still uses an 8-pin connector.

AMD claims that the new GPU is comparable to the Nvidia RTX 2060 and 4060 cards, rating the device for modern games at 1080p or 1440p at max settings with ray tracing enabled. This statement also comes with the expectation that FSR 2 or 3 image reconstruction is turned on.
At a price of $329, the AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT is cheaper than the Nvidia RTX 4060 by $30, and gives users double the VRAM and considerably more cache. With more modern games relying on higher quality textures and meshes, that jump in VRAM is more important than better AI features like on Nvidia’s cheaper offerings.
